Sébastien welcomes you to his XVIIIth century home, authentically renovated with taste, situated in the entre deux mers area, between the plateau of Garonne and wooded hills, near the vineyards of the Sauternes, Saint Emilion, Pessac Léognan, Pomerol and the Loupiac.
I spent one week at Logis de Lestiac with my daughter, his husband and my two grandsons. We were looking for a peaceful countryside atmosphere.
Logis de Lestiac was definitely the good pick. The house is very calm and decorated with antiques by Sebastien and Florence - who were totally helpful during all our stay with shopping recommendations, organisation of the house (kitchen, fireplaces etc).
I spent most of the holidays at the swimming pool and in the charming kitchen !!! There's wonderful mint, basil, thyme, figs etc in the garden - which is great support for French cuisine... Meanwhile my daughter and his husband were visiting the Bordeaux area, which appears to be fantastic as far as history is concerned. My two grandsons were more interested in surf - they went to Cap Ferret several times, where they could practice their favorite sport.
But it was always a pleasure to meet all together in the evening, at "home", for wonderful diners and long conversations in front of the fireplaces. This house definitely reminded me of old style way of living !
It seems that all the family enjoyed it ; my daughter thinks about renting the house again, with a few friends, as soon as possible. Back home, well.. we all missed Logis de Lestiac a lot.
Logis de Lestiac is not a hotel... It s like home at the countryside ! My wife and I spent one week there in order to buy wine. It s very well located middle of the vineyards and close to many beautiful villages with good restaurants (all types of budget). At the end, we spent more time chilling at the swimming pool than visiting the area - as the garden is delightful and the atmosphere very friendly and relax (tasteful furniture, very good music, peaceful location). We were treated as if we were family - and I will definitely return there as it is the perfect retreat for reading, writing, resting ... and visiting a beautiful region. Highly recommended for those who are looking for a secret romantic home - with contemporary way of living !
My husband and I stayed in this home recently with 2 other adults with Sebastian as our host. The home is even more beautiful than the pictures show. It's a very old home that's been completely restored recenlty and is truly beautiful. It's spotlessly clean, decorated and furnished beautifully, and very comfortable. Our room and the room of those we traveled with was very large, and included a very large and modern bathroom as well. Sebastian, the owner and host, is extremely hospitable and friendly and enjoys getting to know his guests. He went out of his way on more than 1 occasion to accomodate our schedule and our needs ... just a very nice person and very good host. He provides a large, fabulous breakfast each morning, including French croissants that he picks up at the bakery early each day so that they're straight from the oven. Dinner is also an option, if you wish, which we had one evening and it was quite a treat. Sebastian loves to cook and had prepared a 4 course dinner, plus wine, for us ... very delicous and at a great price. He does a lot to add to the ambiance of the home ... in the evening there was always a fire going in the fireplace and there were candles lit all around the house. There was usually nice music playing in the background and the smell of something yummy cooking in the kitchen, as well. The back yard is beautiful, as well, and there is patio furniture to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the evening or coffee in the morning near the swimming pool. This home is in the midst of many wine vinyards, so the surrounding countryside is lovely, as well. We had a wonderful time staying here and would recommend it to anyone.
